Genoa want to sign Jack Wilshere this summer, according to well-respected Italian journalist Nicolo Schira.
The Italian will be familiar with Hammers fans, having broke the Sebastien Haller story last summer.
So he clearly has contacts in high places in east London.
And Schira claimed on Twitter yesterday that there could be a potential outgoing at the London Stadium, with Jack Wilshere being linked with a move to Italian side Genoa:

Wilshere has proven to be a shocking signing for us since moving to the London Stadium on a free transfer in the summer of 2018.
The 28-year-old has offered absolutely nothing, and considering the fact that he’s earning £100k-a-week at West Ham (Spotrac), it is vitally important that we move him on before the end of the transfer window.
Even if we have to come to an agreement with the former Arsenal man and pay him off, it will be the right thing to do.
A lot has to change at West Ham, if we are to make progress over the next few years. And one of the main things is that we need to stop buying ageing and injury prone players whilst offering them massive salaries.
The game has evolved and we need young, fit, hungry and energetic players if we are to experience any kind of success.
Let’s hope that Wilshere is the last of those big-money mistakes.
